The Buscadero lives and celebrates remembering Paolo Carù

“The sudden passing of Paolo Carù, who was not only one of the founders of ‘Buscadero’, one of the most beloved writers and the editor, but literally the soul of the magazine, has left us all with a sense of deep sadness and despair, which however has never made us waver in the face of what from the very beginning seemed to us to be an imperative: to carry on the History begun by Paolo, to continue to keep Buscadero alive!”

This is what the collaborators of “Buscadero” wrote in a press release, announcing – “with enthusiasm, pride and emotion” – the release in the next few days of the July/August issue, the cover of which you see in the photo of this article, which will also contain a memory of Paolo Carù, “now and forever the spiritual guide of the Busca of the future”.

The Buscadero Day marathon will take place on Sunday 21 July in Berrini Park in Ternate (Va), on Lake Comabbio, and this day will also be entirely dedicated to Paolo Carù.
There will be round tables with Buscadero journalists and over 20 bands that will alternate on three stages from 12 to 24. All free admission.
And for the first time, Buscadero Day will also land in the South, to give readers from other regions the chance to participate in Paolo Carù’s long musical farewell.
On July 25, Buscadero Day will stop at the Spartacus Arena in Santa Maria Capua Vetere (Ce) with a concert by Bob Dylan and Rolling Thunder Review violinist Scarlet Rivera and many guests who will alternate on stage. The first fan club of the magazine was born in Campania in 2008.

The hottest names on this year’s lineup are David Ford, the English singer-songwriter who came to prominence at the latest edition of the Townes Van Zandt Festival, and Bob Dylan’s violinist, Scarlet Rivera, who will bring to the stage a show full of surprises and guests entitled Buscadero Rolling Thunder Review.

There will also be Eileen Rose and her band with The Legendary Rich Gilbert (Uncle Tupelo, Steve Wynn, Frank Black, Jack White), from Switzerland will come the power folk of The Vad Vuc, sons of the Pogues and the Modena City Ramblers. The most iconic songs of “Riportando tutto a casa”, the debut album of Vad Vuc (“Canto di Natale”, “Ninna nanna”, “Un giorno di pioggia”) were sung by Alberto Morselli who will be among the protagonists of the Festival with his new band The Morsellis. The marathon on Sunday 21 July will close with concerts by Edward Abbiati & The Rattling Chains and the Venetian rocker Massimo Priviero, who will preview his new album to be released in the coming months. At 12.30 there will be a meeting between readers and the editorial staff of Buscadero led by Guido Giazzi. The trip to Texas will follow with memories and anecdotes by Andrea Parodi, Massimiliano Larocca and Python Fecchio and the presentation of the book on Tom Petty by Mauro Zambellini and Marco Denti.
Among the most anticipated guests in the evening from New Jersey will be Joe D’Urso with the band The Italian Job. The presence of Joe D’Urso, president and soul of Light of Day, which raises hundreds of thousands of dollars every year for research on Parkinson’s disease thanks to the support of artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Michael J. Fox, is an added value for Buscadero Day which this year too takes the field alongside WOODinSTOCK APS to fight this terrible disease with music.

Buscadero Day is one of the most anticipated music festivals of the summer and attracts audiences from all over Italy and even abroad.
The Festival was born in 2008, in a small town in the province of Como, Pusiano, which offered suggestive settings for concerts in the former mining quarry in the Prealps and in the lakeside park. Since 2019, Buscadero Day has moved to the province of Varese. Over the years, Buscadero Day has featured Joe Ely, James McMurtry, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, David Bromberg, Cordovas, Davide Van De Sfroos, Massimo Bubola, Massimo Priviero, James Maddock, Paul Young, Suzanne Vega, The Orphan Brigade, Thom Chacon, Dave Alvin, Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, Alejandro Escovedo, Garland Jeffreys, Chuck Prophet, Dan Stuart, Willie Nile, Elliott Murphy, Violante Placido, Jono Manson, Bocephus King, Son Volt, Dave Alvin, Tom Russell, Lilly Hiatt, Ryan Bingham and many others.
